Monster Writing, A Freebie and A Preview!

We are feeling all things Halloween in first grade this week!  Tonight is our community parade and the first graders could not be more excited! With so many of them walking IN the parade I don't know who is going to be watching! :-)

We decided not to fight the excitement and work with it today.  We made torn paper monsters and wrote about them.  They turned out So Cute! We used to give the students patterns for everything, but have decided that things turn out even better with their personal touch so we give them a little guidance and let them go for it. The only thing we showed them for these monsters was how to tear the paper without ending up with a really teeny monster.  We think they did a great job! The writing is still in progress, but we wanted to share the monsters with you and show you some pics of the kiddos working on their monster stories.  We use Step Up to Writing and  just love it.  You can pick up your copy of the writing packet by clicking the picture.

We are also joining the Manic Monday linky tonight at classroom freebies.   This is just a very simple roll and color pack (4 pages), but it is great to give those early finishers and our first graders love anything that involves dice!  Enjoy!

AND NOW... we are so excited to show you a preview of our latest packet!  We spend the month of November learning about the Native Americans.  Our kiddos LOVE it!  They are so interested and so involved in anything Native American.  They get so excited with every new region and tribe they learn about!  Well, we have just posted the study guide that they will be using this year.  We are excited because this is going to make our teaching so organized and easy for our students to follow AND we were able to use our own clipart!  So fun!  If you grab it, let us know what you think!  
Check it out here!
Hope you all have a great week and a Happy Halloween!
